Tania is very happy with quality of life Zurich offers. Zürich can be counted as one of the world’s pre-eminent global cities. According to several surveys from 2006 to 2008, Zürich was named the city with the best quality of life in the world as well as the wealthiest city in Europe.

Tania takes tram everyday to her university and it takes about 20 minutes to get the university. Within Zürich and throughout the canton of Zürich, the ZVV network of public transport has traffic density ratings among the highest worldwide. If you add frequency, which in Zürich can be as often as 7 minutes, it does become the densest across all dimensions. Three means of mass-transit exist: the S-Bahn (local trains), trams, and buses (both diesel and electric, also called trolley buses).

Tania is studying in The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology ETH Zürich. Zürich is home to two universities and many colleges (called gymnasiums). Two of Switzerland’s most distinguished universities are located in the city. The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology ETH Zürich which is controlled by the (federal) state and the University of Zürich that is under direction of the canton of Zürich. Both universities are well-known and have an international reputation. They were listed in the top 50 world universities rated in 2007.
